Bonus question: Where does Super Mario Party rank in your personal list of favorite Mario Party games?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

It has had crazy legs so far frankly. If they release another Mario Party on Switch that could slow it down though, and I sort of expect them to do just that. With that in mind I'll say 15-16 mil.



14-15 mill



I would expect it to at least reach 13M easily.

It's upsetting that this is the best selling Mario Party game yet Nintendo never supported this game after the release. This is one of those games that deserves and cries for DLC (new maps, mini games, characters w/ new dice etc.) Smash already has enough DLC, focus elsewhere!

I can't recall all the Mario Party games but I'd say this probably ranks in the middle at best. It's still fun and I still play this often enough with friends but the lack of maps just hurts it for me. Playing the same 4 small bland maps just isn't enough. I personally felt Mario Party 10 is a much better MP game and it's unfortunate Nintendo didn't decide to re-release it on the Switch as it didn't get the sales it deserved on the Wii U.



If the NS has a long run I'd say it can hit 20m.

I put it at 13-14m, mostly because I expect them to release another Mario Party on the Switch. I can see it selling more than that though if we are still a few years out on the next Mario Party.

This is only the second Mario Party I've owned, so I like it about as much as the other one (the first one on the Wii, whatever that was).



ND Cube went on to make Clubhouse Games after Super Mario Party and that took them more than 1.5 years. If they work really fast, they can finish the next Mario Party in time for the holidays 2021, so Super Mario Party still has a good amount of time left as the only Mario Party on Switch.

Its sales have accelerated along with Switch hardware sales as a whole, so it's safe to say that it can add another 2m in 2020 and then at least 2m in 2021 before a sequel releases. 15m lifetime is the minimum here, but its sales won't come to a halt as soon as a sequel releases, plus late 2021 for a sequel is the worst case scenario for SMP. I voted 17.0-17.9m.

I said 15 million. I expect another Mario Party will come out next year or the year after that will kill off sales of this Mario Party, and will probably sell over 10 million as well.



Awesome! Now give us DLC!!!



Probably 20.

As it stands, it's probably my 5th favorite or so. All of the ones that I played before 8 I liked better. But this one is the best its been since the end of the Gamecube era, Would be one of the best if they added some more boards.
